As many of you know, I’ve been attempting to write up my mullet-hunting experiences in recent months. Many people have told me it would make a great book, so perhaps if I scribble it all down, one day it might be.
The writing process is frustratingly slow, but because I’m off work today and Monday due to local holidays, I am attempting to use the free time for writing.
I’ve been spending the afternoon on my Albanian chapter. In a nutshell, I visited Albania in 2003 to track down the village of Mullet, but it seemed that due to either errors in transliteration or spelling, or just my bad research, it turned out to be called Milot. We drove past it anyway, me in a very grumpy mood.
However, while checking a couple of facts about Albania on the web this afternoon, to help me with the chapter, I stumbled across a very detailed map of the centre of the country. It seems my planning was even more rubbish than I thought.
I’d best stop writing this blog before I scream some most unsavoury expletives. Except to say: who fancies a trip to Albania?
